The Extra Aircraft company was established in 1980 as Extra Flugzeugbau in Germany by Walter Extra, an aerobatic pilot, to design and develop his own aerobatic aircraft.
The company is located at Dinslaken airfield in Hünxe, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.
Walter Extra has always viewed aviation from his own special perspective. As one of the world's most successful competitive aerobatic pilots, he decided in the 1980's to design and build his own aircraft. What began as an experimental one-man operation has since grown into an international success story.
Today, that initiative has become the championship-based EXTRA aircraft line-up, including the aerobatic EA-200, EA-300L, EA-300LP, EA-330LT, EA330LC, EA330LX and EA-330SC aircraft.
Combining the initiative of sporting heritage with economical performance leads to the EA-500 Turbine Business Tourer. Each design masterfully blending performance and economy with the pure joy of flying.
